At some point in time humanity got its wires crossed and parachutes, an invention designed to save lives, became a tool for risking life and limb. Instead of gracefully floating down the side of a mountain, paraglider Joseph Innes skimmed along the bottom of a narrow canyon, just inches away from breaking an ankle,…
God almighty, I can’t feel a damn thing in my body anymore because watching these two maniacs climb the still under construction 2165-foot tall Ping An Finance Center in Shenzhen, China is the most blood halting thing. When completed it’ll be the 2nd tallest building in the world and the tallest building in China.
Time to experience a bit of daredevilry from the comfort of your own chair. Watch as these folks climb to the very tops of skyscrapers (and other high structures), and try not to get too queasy.
I'm 99.9-percent sure that I'm neither qualified nor eligible to join India's Border Security Force, but if I could, I would demand to be assigned to the Daredevil Team. This week, the Daredevil Team dressed in fatigues and donned helmets—safety first!—to wow the crowds at the India Republic Day parade. And wow.
Is there a skyscraper or construction site in the New York City area without a precocious teen Instagrammer on top? NBC reports that Demidism, the 17-year-old who climbed the unfinished 432 Park, has been arrested for trespassing. Meanwhile, the 16-year-old who climbed One World Trade Center this spring has been…
Flying in a hot air balloon seems lovely. But jumping out of a hot air balloon with fire-spewing wingsuits and rope swings? That's totally badass. Where do I sign up? See the whole escapade below:
Chuck Aaron makes helicopters fly upside down thanks to some heavy modifications to his lightweight chopper. And does barrel rolls too. And all sorts of crazy ass maneuvers that are a pleasure to watch but make my stomach turn.
NY1 news is saying that Daniel Vasquez, assistant security director at One World Trade Center, is resigning after two separate events where thrill-seekers were able to break in to the building.
Russian daredevil and photographer Kirill Oreshkin is known for taking selfies from some of the most extreme locations. But this latest stunt — in which he hangs from a high-rise building by just his fingertips — is beyond words.
Taking flight with a wingsuit is probably the scariest thing I can think of doing. And that's part of the reason why this interactive video of German crazy person Beni Kälin jumping off a Swiss mountaintop is so cool. It feels like you're flying—except without the risk of dying part.
Well, that was quick. Balloon-loving daredevil Jonathan Trappe was supposed to float all the way to Europe under 370 helium-filled balloons in three to six days, but he gave up after only 12 hours citing technical difficulties. He hadn't even made it out of North America.
Jonathan Trappe loves balloons. In fact, the 39-year-old IT manager loves them so much that he's trusting them with his life as he attempts to become the first person to cross the Atlantic using only a life raft and 370 helium-filled balloons. If that sounds crazy, that's because it is.
This past weekend, Jonathan Trappe successfully lifted a Pixar-esque house to a height of 20,000 feet over Leon, Mexico, by using a cluster of helium-filled balloons. Trappe has performed similar stunts before, including toy balloon rides over the Alps, Lake Michigan, and the English Channel. But this latest feat was…
